CHRISTMAS FAIR: This Saturday 24th November at the Adastra Hall from 10am to 12 noon. This is the big event in aid of Paws & Claws, the local animal rescue charity which operates across Mid Sussex. There will be plenty of stalls starting with the very popular cake stall, including savouries and jams. Start your Christmas shopping at the gift stalls, buy Christmas items, cards and calendars, clothes and jewellery to get you ready for the cold weather and festive events, household linens and cat items with treats and toys for your favourite feline.

A big book stall of interesting non fiction and paperback fiction, with gifts in mind, DVDs, CDs and jigsaws for good value entertainment, plus many toys and games for the children. Try your hand at the prize every time bumper tombola and the exceptional raffle. Refreshments served, and as an added incentive to drop in and make an early start on the festive season, a free mince pie comes with a cup of coffee or tea. All very welcome.
